Blackwater, Co. Kerry 3?
« on: December 05, 2017, 20:22:52 »
The Blackwater is only 15min for Kenmare and is down as grade 3 with a bit of grade 4 at the end in the old guide book. Maybe with loads of water it might make this grade.

Anyway, start here:

Get out on river right downstream of this bridge and walk back up to where you've parked.

I think I was on this a few years ago with you Peter. Don't remember much on it except for the last drop. I'm not sure if you could just do a static at it though

If I was looking for a Park 'n' huck I think I would go to Sheen falls. As far as I remember it would be an absolute mission to climb down to the last drop from upstream of the bridge.
